If you know even a little about West Virginia (and most of us know at least a little, if not extensively more than that!), then you likely know about Seneca Rocks. These towering spires make their dramatic reach for the sky in an iconic scene known far and wide. What’s not known far and wide, though, is that one of the best swimming holes in all of West Virginia is hidden away along the North Fork South Branch Potomac River, tucked within stunning view of this iconic natural wonder.
